. rather than focusing on america's vexing problems like an exploding debt and a weak economy, mr. obama put forth that the nation's top priority must be imposing social justice. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation who built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [ applause ] for we remember the lessons of our past when twilight years were spent in poverty. parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky. talking points disagrees with president obama's priority. although. impossible to do what the president wants to do. in short, prosperity. can't be done no matter how much money you spend. much more effective is building a strong society based upon a robust free market and effective, effective social programs. that provide opportunity rather than charity. as the president should know by now. the federal government cannot provide fo
